Simulated Info-types in Time Management:

For reporting purposes, you want to have time evaluation results together with

information from Time Management info-types presented in an easy-to-use form.

Time Management Reporting Without Simulated Info-types

The time management data is stored in the various info-types and in cluster B2 (time

evaluation results).

Standard reports enable you to report on individual data sources. For example, you

can report on info-type data (report RPTABS20) or cluster data (report RPTBAL00).

However, they do not enable you to report on info-type data and cluster data.

Therefore, standard reports can restrict you because they only enable you to report on

some of the data relevant to your business.

Simulated info-types facilitate reporting on a new business level. The info-type concept

is used to retrieve data in a user-friendly manner from a variety of data sources

(info-type data, time evaluation results, data from the personal work schedule). For

example, they enable info-type structures to be used to read and report on cluster data

(cluster tables ZES, ZL with ALP and C1).

Therefore, the info-types are simulated because info-type data is not stored in an

info-type database table, as is usually the case. Instead, it is retrieved from a variety of

database tables at runtime by a function module in Time Management.

Just like other info-types, simulated info-types are available in logical database PNPCE.

This means that they can be used like other info-types for customer ABAP programs

and reporting with SAP Query.
